Manhattan Beach w/ my friend Eva
Monday night, I met up with a really old girlfriend of mine from Pensacola, Eva Lawson, who I haven' seen in many, many years- maybe even 8 years or more. She moved out to California (her second time) after living in Colorado, Texas and Greece for a little while. These are pics of Manahattan Beach which is just beautiful and us at dinner at an awesome little restaurant right near the beach. It was a beautiful day and we got to watch the amazing sunset.
Her life has taken many twists and turns like me, and it was great to talk to someone who could relate to many of the things in my life including personal relationships, living in hurricane country, moving around, siblings and family, etc... We met in 6th grade at St. John's school, went to high school together and its neat to re-connect after all this time. Turns out that our mothers call or e mail each other from time to time and my mom knew Eva and I were going to connect before I did. Funny the people that come in and out of your life... things really do happen for a reason because it was really therapeutic to talk to Eva and she literally is like a "guardian angel" to me here in Cali (and thanks for the guardian angel you gave me Eva... oh and the laminated So Cal map- it definitely comes in handy!) Hopefully, it won't be too long until we see each other again-- by the way-- don't forget you need to take me landsailing soon!
